By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – In reaction to the recent mayhem in Owerri, the Imo State capital, which resulted in attacks on the State Correctional Centre and State Police Headquarters by gunmen, Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has warned of a potential catastrophe that could result in mass casualties.
According to the VP the resort to violence can only lead to disaster, calling on citizens to be united in rejecting the agents of anarchy seeking to cause chaos for their own selfish interests.
Osibanjo said this on Tuesday during a visit to Owerri, Imo State, following the Tuesday attack, which he described as .an assault on the way of life of the good people of the state.
“We must reject the agents of anarchy that are seeking to weaponize the frustration and discontent of our young people for their own profit.
“The path of violence can only lead to a disaster that consumes everyone and leads to the desolation of our communities.
“It is easy to take peace for granted, but we need not learn the value of peace through the horrible crucible of war,” Osibanjoh noted.
